Scope for the Imagination…

Rob gives this assignment:
Psychologists Ed Diener and Martin E.P. Seligman cite 150 studies that suggest economic factors have little to do with happiness levels. For example, the Masai of Kenya, whose per capita income is under $300 a year, are as satisfied with their lives as the 400 wealthiest plutocrats in America. People living in the slums of Calcutta are slightly less filled with well-being, but not much. Your assignment, Leo, is to explore the personal implications of this. Can you get to the point where you truly feel that your ability to enjoy life has little to with how much money you have?

And then Cainer says this:
Everything you need is near you. It may not be obvious. You may have to do a little detective work and employ some ingenuity too. You may have to slightly rethink the notion of what it is you actually need. You may have to remember resources that you have not drawn on in a while or swallow your pride and request assistance from a companion. But as long as you are prepared to reach out hopefully, Jupiter insists that you will soon find something solid and reliable that you can grasp.

It’s cool when the boys are on the same general page, don’t you think?

And while I generally treat horoscopes as sort of writing prompts, I like that both are in agreement with my decision to check out of corporate America for a while.

  1. Wow! Mine says: ” Cancerians are kind, clever, caring. There are, of course, exceptions to every rule. But the good news is, we know where the exceptions are. I won’t lower the tone of this page by naming names. Let’s just say that, as the negative side of your sign is now being expressed so well by a certain person in a position of power, you are completely free to focus only on the positive. All you have to do now, is be the wisest, most sympathetic person you know how to be and this will yet be a great day. ”

    Let’s just say there’s a VERY high ranking person at work, who happens to be a Cancer, that this fits to a T!!!

  2. Money is really over rated, Melissa. At least that’s what all the rich people say–and they should know. LOL

    (but you don’t see them giving it away very often either)
